Endothelin-1 (ET-1) is a vasoconstrictor peptide known to be a potent mitogen for glomerular mesangial cells (GMC). In the current study, it is demonstrated that ET-1 treatment of GMC results in serine phosphorylation of the 66-kDa isoform of the adapter protein She (p66(Shc)). ET-l-induced serine phosphorylation of p66(Shc) requires activation of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK)/extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) signaling module and is efficiently inhibited by both a MAPK/ERK kinase (MEK)-selective inhibitor and adenovirus-mediated transfer of a dominant interfering MEK1 mutant. Furthermore, adenovirus-mediated transfer of a constitutively active MEK1 mutant was found to markedly increase p66(Shc) serine phosphorylation. Adenoviruses encoding constitutively active mutants of MAPK kinases 3 and 6 (upstream kinases of p38(MAPK)) and 7 (upstream kinase of c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase) failed to induce serine phosphorylation of this adaptor protein. Serine phosphorylation of p66(Sh)c resulted in its association with the serine binding motif-containing protein 14-3-3. ET-l-induced phosphorylation of a serine encompassed in the 14-3-3 binding motif of p66(Shc) Was confirmed in experiments employing anti-phospho-14-3-3 binding motif antibodies. These studies are the first to demonstrate that G protein-coupled receptors stimulate serine phosphorylation of p66(Shc) and the first to report the formation of a signaling complex between p66(Shc) and 14-3-3.
